WEEK FIVE: SHMATICAL SABBATICAL

Feb 28, 2016


Week five and my shop-less streak is still going strong. My main focus right now has been preparing for the fashion show. I've been spending my time and money on constructing my garments for my collection so I have had little time to shop for clothes. 

WEEK FOUR: LIFE W/O NEW CLOTHES

Feb 21, 2016


I officially am on my shopping sabbatical and haven't bought any new clothes in weeks. It has been relatively easy considering I have been broke since the start of the semester, but there have definitely been some challenges.

WEEK THREE: POOR COLLEGE GIRL

Feb 14, 2016


As this is my first semester of college ever not having a part-time job, I am truly understanding the meaning of "bang for you buck" and the value of a dollar. Buying clothing has literally been the last thing on my mind this week. Lately to manage my money better, I write lists of the things I want and need. Slowly and slowly, I cross off items on my list as I realize I can probably live without them. 

WEEK TWO: VINTAGE TEMPTATION

Feb 7, 2016


Recently, I have been completely uninspired by my clothes. I try to pride myself in thinking more "out of the box" when it comes to my outfits, but lately, I have been in a complete style rut. I often get inspiration from pinterest, magazines, street style, and bloggers. After a stressful week, the typical routine was just not cutting it. In a moment of weakness I caved and went thrift shopping at the local Goodwill store.

THE GIFT OF TRAVEL

Feb 4, 2016



As most of you know, last semester I spent four months studying abroad in Florence, Italy where I had some of the best moments of my life. Not only did I get the chance to immerse myself in the Italian culture, but I also was able to travel around Europe. I explored different cultures and tried new things - things I never could have ever imagined I would be able to do.
